There's a night-and-day difference here between the weed for mmj and the weed for recreational use. I've had my mmj ticket here for years. ( Colorado Constitution Amendment 20 passed by Colorado voters in the year 2000 ) Mmj is stronger with no limits on strength. For Colo residents only, with a doctor's approval. No taxes. I used to get one free ounce of mmj delivered to my home every month. That was six years ago. Now it's ~ 200 / oz. in Fort Collins for "the good stuff" because the rules on mmj have become "enshrined" by the State Legislature. That's when mmj's ma and pa shops were shutdown, along with my caregiver and grower. Everything is commercially operated today, and it's very expensive. All the workers in the mmj business are young people.

Colorado Constitution Amendment 64 was passed by Colorado voters in 2012 for recreational weed. The strength of this weed is limited. It's very heavily taxed. Must be 21 years old. For residents it's one oz / day purchase limit; for non-residents it's one quarter oz / day purchase limit. Pot tourism is being promoted here, but no weed is allowed to leave Colorado. All the workers in the commercial pot business are young people.

Some towns are banning it. ( The usual redneck suspects. )

The Denver City Council recently voted to make it legal for Denver residents to openly smoke dope on their front porch. There ya go!

I think it's very expensive, because of huge taxes and regulation. It's a plant, for cripes sakes. I've seen a lot of very expensive prices.

I have also had a medical card in California for years. Clinics in this state very greatly from excellent to questionable. Local municipalities already tax the medicine but the state, to the best of my knowledge, hasn't gone that way yet. In communities such as mine so many people grow and the attitudes of the general public are such that for all intents and purpose it is already legal. Marijuana arrests are usually secondary to another crime if you don't have a note. The times they are a changin...

We do have some taxes on mmj here. I was wrong when I said "no taxes on mmj in Colo." It's accurate to say "low taxes on mmj when compared to the high taxes on recreational weed." It's ~ 30% tax for recreational weed.

re: weed and crime
- Colorado recently added a "new" THC blood-limit to their DUI laws
- no smoking pot outdoors, same law applies to booze and open containers
- do not smoke dope on U.S. Forest Service land, you can get arrested for that
